The North Carolina Department of Transportation is monitoring the effects of Hurricane Florence on North Carolina and is responding as quickly as possible, as needed.
NCDOT, the N.C. State Highway Patrol and emergency management agencies strongly advise motorists to stay off the roads and out of vehicles.
Do not put your life, or the life of others, in danger by choosing to drive.
Although the storm has passed in some areas, travel conditions across the state are deteriorating as flood waters continue to rise and trees fall because of saturated grounds.
Additionally, GPS navigation companies are not keeping up with all the road closures and are directing people onto roads that are confirmed closed and flooded.
NCDOT maintenance crews are assessing roads as weather conditions allow. The number of road closures is expected to rise.
